There have been rumors floating around that Khloe Kardashian is not actually Robert Kardashian’s child for a while. Now, when it comes to celebrities, rumors like this are always popping up, but they usually go away almost as quickly as they arrive.
The rumor about Khloe has stuck around for quite some time, which could be due to who people are saying her actual father is. Former football player, O.J. Simpson.
According to the rumors, Simpson had an affair with Kris Jenner while she was married to Robert.
The rumors have been backed up by the fact that Khloe doesn’t exactly look like her sisters. Whereas the rest of them have extremely dark features and brown eyes, Khloe has lighter features and blue eyes.
Jenner has denied these claims and Khloe has always acknowledged Robert as her father, but now Simpson has finally spoken up.
What does O.J. Simpson have to say?
Simpson recently joined Twitter and yesterday, he made a video explaining the whole situation between him and Jenner.
“Once and awhile I’m going to go off topic and talk about something else and this is one of those times,” he said in the video. “Bob Kardashian, he was like a brother to me. He was a great guy. He met and married Kris and they really had a terrific time together when they were together.”
“Unfortunately that ended. But never, and I stress never, have I ever had any interest in Kris sexually and I never got any indication that she had any interest in me. So all of these stories are just bad…bogus…tasteless.”
He went on to address the rumors about Khloe.
“Khloe, like all the girls I’m very proud of just like I know Bob would be if he were here, but the simple facts of the matter is she’s not mine,” he said.
How did the rumors get started?
The rumors of this affair and Khloe’s paternity were apparently all started by Robert’s ex-wife.
“I think the thing that most became overwhelming was when, like, the stuff happened with one of my dad’s wives,” Kardashian said on an episode of her show Kocktails with Khloe. “She wanted to come out like 10 years later after my dad passed away and said that I’m not his daughter and that he confided in her and blah blah.”
Robert’s third wife, Ellen Pierson, made these claims to Star Magazine around 10 years after the attorney had died.
Robert’s second wife, Jan Ashley, also made these allegations.
She told Radar Online that Robert had suspected Simpson of being Khloe’s father.
“Robert said, ‘Oh my god, he’s so black, he has curly hair, so does Khloe. Oh my god, you think it’s him?”
According to her, Robert never said anything about his suspicions to avoid hurting Khloe.
“He just kind of looked at me and said [it] like it was a matter of fact. He said, ‘Well you know that Khloe’s not really a Kardashian, don’t you?'”
Khloe has denied the claims since they first came out.
‘The audacity you have to mention my father’s name like this!” she tweeted in 2012 after all of the stories began to show up in the media. “Should be ashamed of urself! I let a lot of things slide but this one is really low… YOU ARE DISGUSTING! (yes you know who YOU are).”
